Reviewing with Others, pt. 6: Kawa

It's time for another Indie Spotlight review! Two Mondays past, I saw Kawa, a New Zealand film about a Maori who comes to terms with his own sexuality, and must reveal his real nature to his family. I can't identify with the specific problem here, but the conflict is universal, and Kawa has a much wider appeal than "gay issues." I truly hope it's not confined to the "Special Interests" or "Gay & Lesbian" section of video stores.

The picture is very well done and I really enjoyed the acting, narrative, and glorious NZ scenery. You should check it out asap. At 6AM EST the review will go up at Man, I Love Films.
